Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

As for the jesus v horus thing, no need to take my word for it, take a look at and the study and the references at the end, you will find it is a valid comparison

Of course you would prefer to believe the NT because the NT is correct because you believe the NT, right?
Horus shit.

That list is false.

It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was born to a virgin.

It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was the "only begotten son of Osiris.".

Horus' mother was Isis, not Mari.

It is not written in Egyptian mythology that Horus was born in a cave and it is not written in the Bible that Jesus was born in a cave.

There is no Egyptian record of Horus being baptized.

Horus is not described as the "savior of humanity", his name literally means "lord of the sky".

You can find the writings of Horus in the following texts:

The Memphite Theology or Shabaqo Stone (generally dated as late as the New Kingdom, c. 1540-1070 BC)
The Mystery Play of the Succession
The Pyramid Texts (from the late Old Kingdom, c. 2575-2150 BC)
The Coffin Texts, especially Spell 148
The Great Osiris hymn in the Louvre
The Late Egyptian Contendings of Horus and Seth
The Metternich Stela and other cippus texts
The Ptolemaic Myth of Horus at Edfu

You can either do some research or stick to your atheist notion of Horus shit.

I already know which one you'll choose.

I need to reply to cunning. This post that you just made explIning atheism is showing that you do in fact follow a belief or code made by your fellow atheist groups. You speak as a group instead of an individual. You are therefore, non-believers. Everything you described is folllwed by most whether religious or the not so religious.
At the end of the day,someone or something guides you and your beliefs. It is not that you dont believe in my God but rather what you feel is your god,whether that be you or a thing or a thought according to you at that moment.

Horus and the mythology continuum by Christians

Just a few minor similarities...

A Jewish prophet by Jewish Christians in the first century CE,

As a man-god by later Christians, and

As history's second greatest prophet by Muslims.

If these points of similarity were between Horus and any other historical Jewish individual -- for example Pilate, the Procurator of Judea -- then there would be universal agreement that someone in ancient times had simply copied elements of Horus' story and falsely attributed them to Pilate.

That is, both life stories would be myths -- events that never happened but which have great spiritual significance.

But Pilate was not involved. The first century CE individual was Yeshua of Nazareth! His story is found documented in in the Christian Scriptures -- the New Testament of the Bible.

How these points of coincidence are interpreted depends upon one's view of the Bible:

If it is viewed as an inerrant book, free of error, whose authors were inspired by God, then one would suspect that a massive fraud must have taken place. The events really formed part of Jesus' life because the Bible is free of error. Somehow the events were also attributed to Horus in Egypt for many centuries before Jesus' birth through fraudulent means.

If the Bible is viewed as a historical document, like other cultures' holy books, then it is obvious that events in Jesus' life were copied from stories that had been associated with Horus for many centuries before Jesus' birth. The events are fictional. Probably none actually happened in reality.

After removing these myths from the Gospel, there would be not much left of the stories other than an an account of:

An exceptional Jewish itinerate preacher and native healer who had an uneventful birth,

Who, at the age of about 35 gathered a small group of followers and toured the Galilee,

Spread a type of reform Judaism that matched the teachings of Hillel from the first century BCE,

Was convicted of aggravated assault in the Jerusalem temple, and

Was routinely executed for treason by the occupying Roman army, along with thousands of others in the first century CE.

In short, Jesus' story would be very similar to that promoted by the Jesus Seminar today.

Quite interesting that you are too deliberately ignorant to read the text and comments on that page.
Consider the words “He found one in a residential area next to a UN building”.
Not in or on the building or in the building but in a residential area next to the building. Tell me are you responsible for what your neighbours do? Neither were those CHILDREN sheltering under UN protection.
And I suggest you scroll down to the comment section.
As to the authenticity of the image shall we see if it is used as a defence when Isreal faces wer crimes charges?
Honey, when someone fires from a residential area at a residenrial area, it is a double war crime.

Moreover, it would be a war crime if Israel didnt defend its people from such barbarity.

Your bigorty is making you stupid.

To be or not to be?

A lover of one’s self?

Self admiration and highmindedness?

“For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers…….”

many brain damaged creationists have tried to sell their god before they have proven it.

And they are all fools because there's no such thing as god. AND YOU ALL KNOW IT.
